J. Mendel Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Includes A Slew of Ethereal Gowns

The J. Mendel spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection featured 29 very detailed looks that covered everything from comfortable, professional looks to floor-length dramatic evening ready dresses. The looks for spring were clearly very fitted and very feminine. Some of the looks creative director Giles Mendel showed were clearly for business, while others were for a fun day out in the spring sunshine. Across the collection, every look was very intricately designed to provide a lot of different textures and a well-structured appearance.

The overall initial impression is that Giles Mendel decided to take on not only the sheer trend, but also the cut out trend with a very serious eye for detail. Shades of sunny yellow, bright periwinkle blue, white, light pink, black and red adorned this collection fabulously.

There are cute shrugs and sheer peplum jackets and even laser-cut fur coats and tops. The silhouettes in the J. Mendel spring/summer 2017 collection are fantastic and flattering and appear to be designed to fashionably take on every temperature change that the spring season is known to produce.

The fur coat with wide collar features fur rosettes across the collar, down from closure at the front and in three even rows across the hem and cuffs. The striped design in the majority of the coat creates an interesting texture and allows for the sheer stripes to show without either texture overpowering the other.

One of the best features being seen on the runway this season is the use of useable, actual pockets on dresses that do not alter the lines or fit of the dress. It is excellent to know that Giles Mendel has included this feature in many of his spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection dresses.

There were 11 floor-length gowns in this collection and none of them looked similar to the other. In fact, not a single piece within this collection majorly mimics another, everything is unique and beautifully, impeccably done.

There are a lot of see-through options included in the line-up, as well as a lot of prints. The ensembles for spring that feature prints have more than one print aligned with another to make an interesting visual combination on a variety of items, like the boot-cut pants and visually stimulating matching top that is white with a pattern in the center and strategic cut outs near the neck.

There are so many stand-out details and such creativity in the J. Mendel spring 2017 runway collection that it is hard to choose a favorite. There are so many truly wearable items that the collection could be considered nothing if not a full, intriguing and beautiful success.
